Everything 1st class
Before the project
I have friends who are builders, plumbers, electricians, plasterers, etc., so when I decided on a loft conversion I could have employed my friends, however not wanting to organise so many people, I turned to the Internet and researched several companies, I narrowed it down to a shortlist of 8 local firms from whom I received quotes, I choose CA Johnson their quote was not the most expensive but equally they were not the cheapest, I choice them as;
They are a family business.
They operate from an office that you are always able to contact.
You will deal primarily with a family member right from the outset.
They are very experienced in all aspects of loft conversions having set up in the 60’s meaning, they are long established and have withstood the test of time.
During the project
They are very professional, they arrive when they say they will, they do what they say they are going to do. They have a team of workers who are manner able, diligent, and were very trustworthy throughout the duration of my three-month project they had pretty much free access to the whole house as my doors do not have locks on them.
With regards to their workmanship, they employ good working practices, their standard of work is exemplary, they do not cut corners, such is their confidence in their own work that they send invoices in arrears and they do not ask for a deposit or any money up front and will mainly invoice for work already completed.
If you are looking for something cheap and cheerful these guys are not for you. However, if you are looking for a firm that charges a fair rate for a quality service and excellent finish then these guys are for you.
After the project
A few weeks after the project had ended I had issues with a couple of things, within 2 days they had sent a workman round and the issues resolved.
Many thanks to the team at C&A Johnson for a job very well done.
